The Bucknell Review

The Bucknell ReviewThe Bucknell Review was, for fifty years (1954-2004), a major journal of letters, arts, and sciences. It appeared in both paper cover and hardback, and published some of the leading scholars in the humanities of the time. It came to prominence under the long editorship of Harry Garvin (1957-1984), and it featured work by dozens of Bucknell faculty. Bucknell Review evolved out of an earlier journal, the Bucknell University Studies (1949-1954), and it has been succeeded by a new interdisciplinary publication, Aperçus: Histories Texts Cultures (2004-). List of general editors: Gladys Cook (1954-1957), Harry Garvin (1957-1984), Michael Payne (1984-1990), James Heath (1984-1985), Mark Neuman (1986-1987), Richard Fleming (1986-1987), Pauline Fletcher (1990-2002), and Greg Clingham (2002-2004).

Transits: Literature, Thought & Culture 1650-1850

Transits: Literature, Thought & Culture 1650-1850Series editors: Greg Clingham, Bucknell University: clingham@bucknell.edu; Kate Parker, University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse: kparker@uwlax.edu; and Miriam Wallace, New College, Florida: mwallace@ncf.edu

Begun in 2011—as a new iteration of the Bucknell Studies in Eighteenth Century Literature and Culture (1998-2010; 51 titles)—this series of scholarly monographs and edited volumes publishes beautiful and surprising work. Without ideological bias, the series seeks transformative readings of the literary, artistic, cultural, and historical interconnections between Britain, Europe, the Far East, Oceania, and the Americas during the years 1650 and 1850, and as their implications extend down to the present time. In addition to literature, art and history, such “global” perspectives might entail considerations of time, space, nature, economics, politics, environment, and material culture, and might necessitate the development of new modes of critical imagination, which are welcome.


Annual Journal

1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era

Editor: Kevin L. Cope, Louisiana State University: encope@lsu.edu. Review Editors: Baerbel Czennia, McNesse State University: bczennia@yahoo.de and Samara Anne Cahill, Nanyang Technological University: SACAHILL@ntu.edu.sg

This well-established annual journal, under the editorship of Kevin L. Cope, commences publication with Bucknell University Press in its 24th volume. 1650-1850 publishes essays and reviews from and about a wide range of academic disciplines—literature (in English and other languages), philosophy, art history, history, religion, and science. Interdisciplinary in scope and approach, 1650-1850 emphasizes aesthetic manifestations and applications of ideas, and encourages studies that move between the arts and the sciences—between the “hard” and the “humane” disciplines. The editors encourage proposals for “special features” that bring together five to seven essays on focused themes within its historical range, from the Interregnum to the end of the first generation of Romantic writers. While also being open to more specialized or particular studies that match up with the general themes and goals of the journal, 1650-1850 is in the first instance a journal about the artful presentation of ideas that welcomes good writing from its contributors.
